    What global impact can a graduate degree in Biological and Agricultural Engineering at Kansas State University make on mankind? The worlds population is projected to exceed 9 billion people by 2050. Future generations face unique biological and ecological challenges. The BAE department is actively engaged in research to address challenges faced by the next generation. Examples include food availability, preservation of natural resources, water quality and quantity issues, climate change and others.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.

    Program requirements

    An applicant to the Graduate School at Kansas State University must have a bachelor's degree substantially the same as the ones granted by Kansas State University. That is, it must represent a broad range of courses in the basic academic disciplines. Applicants whose degrees do not meet these standards may be denied admission to graduate degree programs at Kansas State University.Admission is denied to applicants holding bachelor's degrees with a significant amount of credit for work that was not supervised by a faculty member of an accredited college or university or evaluated in units that identify the academic content. A limited amount of credit for experience, when awarded as an acceptable part of a bachelor's degree for internships, fieldwork, or the like, is not a cause for denial but must be clearly identified as graded work. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 6.5 TOEFL paper-based test score : 550 TOEFL iBT® test: 79

    Most graduate students are able to finance their education with a variety of financial assistance tools specific to graduate school:

    * Graduate Assistantships: Funded by individual departments and graduate programs, teaching, research and graduate assistantships are awarded based on a student's ability and promise.
    * Graduate Fellowships
    * Loans: Loans are available to U.S. citizens or permanent residents who have successfully applied for financial assistance
    * Traineeships: Traineeships are offered through the university or departments that have federally supported traineeships.
